I’ve been following Laura Towler on YouTube for a while. I don’t remember how I came across her channel, but I always appreciate her very direct approach in discussing serious issues facing the UK and its people (such as the grooming gang scandals).
This book list comes from one of her recent videos. Some of the books were familiar to me while others I had never heard of. She details her reasons for each book in her video and I really recommend you give it a listen to on YouTube or BitChute before disregarding any of the books on the list.
This quote in particular stood out to me, and it is an enduring message that we could all be reminded of.
“It’s good to read books, but it’s also good to put those books down sometimes and look around you, talk to people with varying views, allow yourself to feel uncomfortable, think critically, disagree, question, use common sense. There doesn’t have to be an approved way of thinking. You don’t need permission for something to be correct…”
